■ What is WafCharm?
WafCharm is an automated AI-based "AWS WAF" rule (signature) management service. AWS WAF is a cloud-based Web Application Firewall service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS), a firewall product that protects web applications from common web exploits that could affect application availability, compromise security, or consume excessive resources. While AWS WAF is an effective way to protect the user's system from attacks such as unauthorized access, it also requires customization, continuous adjustment, and management to fit the user's application and system in operation. Therefore, there are some challenges, such as the need to have the resources of expert personnel to deal with new vulnerabilities.

WafCharm is equipped with an AI engine that uses machine learning to automatically apply the most appropriate WAF rules to AWS WAF using CSC's accumulated big data of more than 1 trillion data, which enables WafCharm to automatically apply the most appropriate rules for each user. This frees users from web application security measures in an AWS environment, allowing users to focus more resources on their business.
